Meet the Author
Chris Agos has been acting professionally for more than two decades. He’s worked over 4000 jobs for 500 different clients. In 1995, with no contacts in the industry, he gave up medical school and set out to learn about the business of acting in Chicago. Through an organized approach, a willingness to try anything and incremental goal setting, he built a thriving career as a full-time actor and voice over talent.
Chris firmly believes actors should study the business of acting as much as they study the craft. To help, he wrote the first edition of Acting In Chicago in 2010. Used in university acting programs and recommended by acting coaches and teachers, it has become the go-to resource for actors looking to launch and/or grow an acting career in the Midwest.
